Doctors and more doctors

Its starting to feel more like Florida with the temperatures this passed week and the coming week going to be in the 80's. 
People are making good use of the swimming pool and adding to their tans.

I have just a few more small details before I start laying the Allure vinyl flooring.  Things are going pretty slow with Nancy having doctors appointments and blood drawn many times.

Nancy has had  iron deficiency anemia all her life and has been checked many times.
So this passed week her Nephrologist had her go to the Florida Specialist Clinic to see if they could find out her problem.
Nancy thought she was going to have a blood transfusion by the time they took so much blood from her. The doctor that talked with her explained to her what they where going to do at what the blood test will show.  He went into great detail at the various things they can do depending at what results of what they find out about her drawn blood.

This week we will be busy with the doctors again like last week.
Tomorrow Nancy has to get a blood monitor for 24 houra then Tuesday see her Nephrologist for the results of that,

Wednesday back to the Florida Specialist Clinic to talk to the doctor and see the results and findings of the drawn blood.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

WOW, we walked today

Nancy had to be at lab Corp yesterday to have her blood drawn for her kidney doctor to check the kidneys and how they are doing.

While we were out we went to Bob Evans to have lunch/dinner.
We were brought our coffee and waiting for our meal which was off of the breakfast menu.

We all know a breakfast meal any time of day or night is always good.  And my big plate/plates of my food was more than enough. So I could not eat all of it so I will have the pancakes for breakfast today.  While we were enjoying our meal, I asked Nancy if she felt good enough to go to Walls Spring Park and do a little walking.  She said she was willing to give it a try.

Since we pass Tarpon Springs on the way I took a ten minute drive through the town to listen to the music and smell the aroma of the Greek food.  We like to do this when we get the chance and all of it with the windows of the car rolled down.

In another fifteen minutes we were in Walls Springs Park.  I took Nancy's walker out of the car and we were on the boardwalk enjoying the nice sunny day.

This is a good place to walk with the breeze coming off the gulf water feels good.

This Heron is in the wrong place to catch fish because the fish were jumping on around the bay.

The Heron and this squirrel with a few ducks is all the wild life we saw.

But that's ok because every turn along the path was a Kodak moment.

It only took one half a mile before Nancy said that it was about all she could take.
She had to stop several times to sit on a bench to rest before she could continue back to the car.

We both agreed that it sure felt good to get out and relax with a walk.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

College Basketball Games

Friday evening I thought I was coming down with something find of what Nancy has been dealing with. But by yesterday evening I had started feeling better and I told Nancy I was probably just extra tired.
Nancy keeps telling me to slow down that at my age I can't do like I used to work.

Yesterday morning Nancy prepare a nice extra large breakfast and it sure did taste mighty good.

After going to the store and getting a few things, it was time for me to settle in to watch the college basketball games. 

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Laundry today

Wow, would you believe that I went shopping yesterday for some groceries and things that we needed. 
I ended up lining out five different stores because I'm a bargain shopper and try to save a little by doing this.

So it was another no working on the house project, but life has to go on with other things getting in the way.
Like today will be the laundry.  As a matter of fact that last night Nancy said if she felt like it she would do the washing in our small washer/spin dryer here in the house.  After she does a couple of loads I will take it down to the laundromat here in the park to dry.
The laundromat is so close that I carry the clothes down to dry then I can come home for an hour. Then walk back down get the dried clothes and  bring them back home.

I'm glad to report that Nancy says she is feeling some what better even though she still has that nagging cough.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Cooking nd working.

I had a couple of stores where I had some shopping to do.
I have them lined up to go where the best prices are.  The first place was Dollar General for a couple of items that we needed.

As I came out of the Dollar General I saw across the road that this copter was just landing.
I was amazed at how well the pilot had set the copter down.  He only had around a foot on each side of the runners setting down on the elevated pad.
Of course I think most of the copter pilot's  are trained in the armed service.

The next stop was Winn Dixie to get a few things to prepare  Nancy and I our meal for the day.
With her not being able to stay up for any length of time I am pulling double duty.

The remodeling is running extra slow at this time.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Chicken Soup

I had to take Nancy back to MedExpress yesterday because she wasn't doing any better.
The ARNP checked her then checked her chart.  When he came back he with her prescriptions for cough syrup, nebulizer  and an inhaler.
I went out today and gathered everything up that she needed.

I also did some grocery shopping to get all I needed to make her some chicken soup.
After all isn't home made chicken soup is good for what ails a person.

It was a very nice day with the temperature in the 80's and is suppose to be for the rest of the week.

I even got myself a chance to get a haircut.  I told the barber that with the hair being cut it felt like someone had left the door open.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

I had to take Nancy to a Med-Care Clinic because she has been coughing and sneezing with a wheezing in her chest.
We went to the Med-Care Clinic because we thought it would be Quick getting into see the doctor. Well that was not the case, it took a total of three hours being there.
Thee doctor told her she had a touch of   Bronchitis he gave her an injection and subscriptions for three different types of medication and told her if she was not better in three days to come back.
The doctor didn't want it to end up being  pneumonia.

I watched some college basketball games yesterday.

Today I will be watch another millions of people will be doing and that is watching the Super Bowl.

It will be Tuesday before I can get back to work on the house because tomorrow Nancy has to go in to her  Nephrologist to be fitted up with a blood monitor to wear for 24 hours.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day
